E-commerce and online shopping will be allowed to proceed under level 4 lockdown, government announced recently. South Africa is one of the only countries in the world to halt digital commerce while in hard lockdown. After facing much backlash from the industry and consumers, government finally amended level 4 restrictions to allow for online buying to resume.
On Friday, 15 May 2020, Bella Luna announced the reopening of their online store. They are now able to deliver all online orders made during the lockdown period, as well as new orders. Delivery is free on orders over the value of *R750. For orders that are below R750, there is a flat fee of R70.
If you or a family member celebrated their birthday under lockdown, you'll know just how difficult it was to find a decent gift. With only essentials allowed for purchase in level 5 lockdown, many of us received battery packs, Cadbury chocolates and Dettol soap for our birthdays. Make up for all those sad lockdown birthday memories by spoiling yourself or a special someone with a belated birthday gift from Bella Luna. Their selection of exquisite watches, bracelets, earrings and charms is the perfect way to show you care.
Similarly, if you have an anniversary coming up (or need to apologise for something you did while in lockdown), Bella Luna is here to help you say 'I love you' / 'I'm sorry'. Their online store is currently offering 21% off all jewellery and watches. All you need to do is enter the promotional code, #TogetherAtHome at checkout to receive your discount.
P.S: If you sign up to the Bella Luna newsletter, you get an additional 15% off your first order. Sign up here!
The best gift is often the gift of choice. For the times when you simply can't decide what to buy for a friend, family member or even yourself, Bella Luna offers gift cards. While these cards are only valued at R50 each, they come with a sweet greeting card that can be sent via email, instant message or print. There are eight cards to choose from, each celebrating a different special occasion. Say 'Happy Birthday', 'Happy Father's Day' or 'Thank You' with one of these cards and a Bella Luna voucher to redeem at a later date.

Rose gold, bronze and copper are taking over the jewellery and design industries. This trend started a few years ago and has since boomed in South Africa. Individuals, jewellery designers and interior designers have taken full advantage of the beauty of these metals.
Despite being the hype in the home décor, jewellery and restaurant industries, there is a bit of confusion surrounding the differences between rose gold, bronze and copper.
The main difference between these metals is the colour:
Rose gold is pink with a tinge of gold.
Bronze is a metallic brown with a hint of gold.
Copper is a reddish brown.
Copper, rose gold and bronze have become trendy simply because they offer a stylish alternative to traditional metals, like silver and gold.
These colours and accents are versatile, and can be appropriate for both masculine and feminine styles. These metals offer the perfect stylish accessory, whether you are a man or woman, young or old.
These accents have inspired jewellery designs, creating a unique look and feel. Ladies can opt for rose gold, copper and bronze bracelets, necklaces and rings. However, not only ladies have been inspired by these accents. Gents are also loving these metals, adding accessories to their wardrobes, such as cufflinks.
Designers are also taking full advantage of these metals, creating masterpieces such as watches, rings, bracelets, necklaces, earrings and so much more.
Interior designers are changing the game with these metals, using them to design breathtaking kitchens, bathrooms and living rooms.
Of course, furniture is a simple way to add some rose gold, bronze and copper into the mix. Furniture architects have also taken furniture design to new levels with accents of these metals.
Rose gold has taken stationery to a new level. You only need to look at all the rose gold stationery at Typo to see why. This innovative stationery is simply gorgeous.
Other things that have been inspired by rose gold, bronze and copper accents are:

Wrapped in an iconic shade of night blue and elevated by the sparkle of crystals, the Holiday 2019 Collection evokes magic, wonder and nostalgia. Delicate angel wings, asymmetrical shooting stars and shining details remind us of our important place in the galaxy.
Created with mixing, stacking and layering in mind, the coordinating styles and matching pieces of Timeless Elegance and Pandora Celestial are ideal for meaningful holiday gifting.
Completing the celestial theme of the season is the new Pandora Zodiacs Collection in sterling silver. The astrological symbols style seamlessly with the holiday collection’s other styles. Wear your zodiac sign proudly or show your loved ones that you know them by gifting them their star sign.
Contemporary designs and updated stone settings compliment the celestial expression. Raised stones increase the brilliance and sparkle of the stone, and they've introduced a healing heart cut on select pieces. It’s a perfect expression of love in time for the season of giving.
In partnership with Warner Bros. Consumer Products, Pandora introduces a collection of Harry Potter-themed jewellery. Pandora will debut a capsule collection of 12 hand-finished products, including charms, pendants and a bracelet inspired by the magical world of Harry Potter.
Harry Potter, Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley are brought to life as sterling silver charms, along with recognisable symbols from the popular books and movies, like the Hogwarts Castle and a limited edition ‘Golden Snitch’ pendant in Pandora Shine.
Completing the collection is a Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry charm, Dobby the House Elf holding Harry Potter’s sock behind his back and a Hogwarts Express charm with “Anything from the Trolley, dears?” engraved on the bottom.
All four Hogwarts house charms are represented in sterling silver double dangles with craftsmanship details that will excite super fans, like a front disc detailed with the house logo surrounded by crystals in house colours. On the back disc, the edges are detailed with crenellations, in reference to the battlements of Hogwarts Castle and a bail shaped like the Hogwarts crest.
Style the pieces from this collection on the Golden Snitch Bangle, which is an update of a classic Pandora Moments bangle, featuring the iconic Quidditch symbol at the clasp.
The Harry Potter x Pandora Collection will be in Pandora stores worldwide.

You can find everything from party decorations, to wedding decor and even home and office furniture. This two-storey retail wonderland stretches on for what seems like a kilometre. A party shop maze, there is a never ending array of wallet-friendly knickknacks here. Make sure to visit on a day when you have nothing else planned! And, wear your good walking shoes because this is an adventure.
Evermore is the home of party decor in Edenvale. In fact, they are so well stocked that people travel from all around Joburg just to get their hands on handmade piñatas, masks, party hats, balloons, confetti and funky wigs. If you are planning a baby shower, trust Evermore to have all you need to make it a success. With boys, girls and gender neutral props and decorations, this is the ideal place to kit out your celebration of new life. While most of their accessories are generic, there is so much here that you can easily customise a unique themed party of your own.
While Halloween has come and gone, there will always be a fancy dress party lurking around the corner. Rather than raid your closets for something to wear, visit Evermore. Think scary masks, animal masks, anime, kiddies costumes, adult get-ups and even ballerina tutus! Even the fussiest dresser is sure to find something to their liking here.
Need a few accessories to spruce up your costume? Evermore has row upon row of hair ties, cute clips, headbands and beaded jewellery. They also sell loose beads and tools for making your own special creations. Kiddies just adore this section of the store (apart from the toys, of course!) Bring them along if you dare.

If you are in desperate need of costume makeup or a few inexpensive cosmetics, get them here. Back to School stationery shopping? You can get that done here too. Artists will also love Evermore's range of craft products, including paintbrushes, acrylics, Styrofoam and DIY tools.
We could go on forever about everything that Evermore has to offer, but we'll skip right to the homeware aisles. Upstairs (yes, there is an upstairs), you can find super affordable house warming gifts. These may not be your state-of-the-art appliances, ceramics or ornaments, but you definitely can get more for your money here than at most homeware stores. They are the perfect starter items for a newlywed couple or young family.
Believe it or not, there is more! Evermore also stocks a wide range of high tech electronic gadgets, including Bluetooth speakers, VR glasses and a millennial's biggest pet peeve, the selfie stick. Shop at Evermore this coming festive season rather than endure the relentless dredge of hitting up your local mall. Naturally, the store does fill up quickly during this period, but the deals you will score are totally worth it. Plus, you can get all your shopping done in one fell swoop.
Don't let Evermore know that we told you this, but they often give customers huge discounts on their shopping. How it works is that you stick your hand into a mixed bag of numbers and draw out a card. Whichever number you draw is the amount you get off of your scattering of items! They also offer pensioner discounts, so take granny or grandpa along for extra luck.

This is echoed when you look at their in-house-designed creations under the banner Nom Nom. Elegance Jewellers creative director, Oresti Mavrodaris is a ﬁrm believer in creating one's reality, often finding inspiration in the simplest ways. From the decor and design of each store to the delicious cups of coffee served while you wait, there's an impressive attention to detail when it comes to Elegance.
Speaking about the creation of Nom Nom, Oresti explains, "Daily life is my muse. So, for sentimental reasons, I wanted to attach a nostalgic jewel to a chain and I used what might just be the world's strongest string to 'float’ it from the necklace. The result is bespoke, quirky, chic. This being Johannesburg — with its restless collective eye on the spy — I had two million compliments in the first five minutes, followed by requests for similar charm necklaces, and I knew we were onto something."
The end result is Nom Nom, an Elegance Jewellers in-house charm necklace and bracelet jewellery line that's become the hottest thing in Joburg with stars such as Susan Sarandon flying in just to grab her very own Nom Nom accessory.
Nom Nom presses all the right buttons: the use of string evokes a practical African aesthetic that's simple but glamorous. Nom Nom fans are part of a globetrotting style tribe — Nom Nom is now worn everywhere from Australia and Canada to the UK and Italy with clients able to be part of the design process as each piece is unique and custom-designed for the individual.
Nom Nom also underscores Elegance‘s take on business, which is above all driven by its namesake — elegance. "I personally like the fact that we‘re exporting to Italy, a country celebrated throughout the world for its jewellery design and its uncanny ability to build a brand out of the seemingly nonsensical concept of 'Italian gold’, particularly as it’s often South African gold from which it built that very brand," Oresti says.
Nom Nom is available from all Elegance stores in Gauteng.

There's A New Thomas Sabo Collection Available
Thomas Sabo is launching a varied collection that connects two central themes: yearning for the faraway and the love of the familiar. In the jewellery collection, you'll find expressive avant-garde looks, filigree diamond jewellery, elegant sterling silver essentials, strong rebel-at-heart designs and items of jewellery that can be personalised with special engravings. Each design is made of 925 sterling silver, exquisitely gold plated or hand-embellished with decorative stones.
The universal inspiration and key message of the collection appears in a range of its own: as a new product, a sparkling heart, and a ring engraved with ‘Forever Together’. They merge to create feminine items of jewellery – symbolically, an inseparable unit. They're also available in an exclusive fine jewellery version with faceted diamonds and 9k rose gold.
Other Collections To Look Out For
The feminine Glam & Soul collection offers a large selection of graphic jewellery designs that make clear statements in back-to-basics style. With exceptional individual styling, the ladies’ collection is joined by the Royalty range – an artistic interpretation of the Victorian era – as well as the Mini Chakras, a representation of the main centers of physical energy of Hinduism. These ranges, full of vital energy and strength, give expression to the love of decades and cultures.
Rebel-at-heart jewellery for men and women combines modern design codes with the symbolism of centuries-old cultures. In this tenth anniversary year, Thomas Sabo reinterprets the classic icons of the collection, from the skull to the cross design.
Meditative energy sources are the Power Necklaces and Power Bracelets. Inspired by Buddhist Mala prayer beads, the new designs with stone beads are said to give inner strength and support the flow of energy.
Invoking the inspirations of the jewellery collections, Thomas Sabo once again offers matching watches for Spring/Summer 2017: New designs for women in the Spirit and Karma range, together with the new watches for men in the Rebel Spirit and Rebel with Karma ranges, are more than just timepieces.
The new collection is available in Thomas Sabo stores – Sandton and Menlyn Park as well as at select partner stores.
